Egypt Construction Forum & Awards
This year began with various international governments and commercial enterprises pledging over $92bn in the energy, housing and transportation sectors across Egypt. In addition the expansion of the Suez Canal, there are plans for the development of the surrounding area as well as the development of an entire new city, east of Cairo, that will accommodate five million people along with all the civil infrastructure. Though this might sound good for the construction sector, development in Egypt is fraught with challenges. The government has imposed very tight schedules on the completion of its projects which will require contractors to employ the latest construction techniques and technologies to deliver their projects on time.
IQPC’s Egypt Construction Forum and Awards will highlight significant challenges including the availability of modern machinery and materials, skilled labour force on new building techniques and an increase in sustainability and environmental considerations.
Date: 24 – 25 November 2015
Venue: Fairmont Heliopolis & Tower in Cairo, Egypt
